My love affair with "Compare and Contrast Double Dice Deck"

I am a really big fan of these "Double Dice Decks" from The Speech Corner. I was introduced to them by my student teaching supervisor, and at the end of the year I loved them so much that they were gifted to me. She's a pretty awesome SLP! I used them yesterday with my middle schoolers and we had a lot of fun!

They're a blast, they're flashy, and they target a bunch of common goals for compare/contrast. They also make one for categories that I have - that one is pretty great as well!

I don't know if it's the double dice that make it fun, or that I turn it into a Family Feud-style game show every time I use these, but the kids are always into it!

Basically each card has a shape on the front and then numbered questions on the back. The student roles the double dice and then either answers the corresponding question or reads it aloud. There are specific ways to play this, but I've found the kids really just want to roll the dice LOL.

I did see on their website that they have a book filled with worksheets that can be used with the dice...that may be my next purchase! I will of course report back! :)

Price-wise I think it's pretty reasonable. Each add-on deck retails for $16.99. You can buy a pack of 2 double dice for $11.95.

Winter Adapted Book FREEBIE!

With the crazy weather here in NY (see house pic nightmare of snow!) I wanted to share my adapted free book for winter clothing! This will be one of those short, late-night posts, so I apologize! I wanted to make sure this one got out to you guys!

I created this for use with an AAC device, but it really can be utilized for so much more! I've also used this activity to target vocabulary with an ESL student, following directions with a student targeting auditory comprehension, and as an introduction to the topic of winter!

The options are endless! Plus, I wanted to make this a freebie since I know I have been using tons of awesome freebies on TpT from fellow bloggers - gotta give back!

Halloween Following Directions Print-N-Go Packet

Just a quick check-in before I wander off into Sunday chili and sweatpants! I wanted to share this following directions packet I've been using for the month of October. I have a lot of kinders this year who came in with following directions goals. I've been trying to target them each session with fun, coloring crafts each time so they can see their work.
This packet is four pages, black and white, and FREE! It includes following 1 and 2 step directions, following varied directions, and following conditional directions. All the sheets are halloween themed and of course black and white for low-ink usage! Check out this scarily fun packet HERE on TpT! 

FREE Parent Handout for "Self-Talk" and "Parallel Talk"!

This summer I pledged that I would work with more of the little little guys in my private practice - early intervention and preschool age. I love this age group and really missed working with them (currently I see preK through second grade in a school setting). Working in a home-based environment is incredible because of all of the great parent-training we get to do. I love being able to explain and show exactly what I'm doing and the strategies I'm using.

As all SLPs know, with this age group we are doing a lot of self and parallel talk. Sometimes I leave my half-hour sessions out of breath! Of course, talking is never an issue for an SLP!! I find that my parents are talking to their child, however their language needs to be modified, or they need to present things differently (i.e., giving options to elicit more language vs. yes/no questions).

I created this parent handout to familiarize my parents with what I'm doing and to emphasize effective carryover. I like to say …
